Paintbrush Diplomacy comes to Cinema Place Gallery
Submitted By Michael Wallace
Cinema Place Gallery is currently showing works by young people from around the world in a new show, "Paintbrush Diplomacy." The non-profit Paintbrush Diplomacy was founded in San Mateo, California, in 1975 to foster peace and show how art can be a vehicle to bring cultures together. The organization takes art supplies all over the world to work with young people. The art these young people create helps us all to see how similar our cultures really are.
Now you can see the amazingly creative art of children from around the world right at your local art gallery. Hayward's Cinema Place Gallery will host approximately 80 paintings from over 30 countries including Bangladesh, Brazil, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Canada, Chile, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, India, Iraq, Japan, Kenya, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Scotland, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, and the USA. There will also be ceramic sculpture from the Hayward School District on display.
The show runs through Saturday, June 28. To find out more about Paintbrush Diplomacy, visit paintbrushdiplomacy.org.
